7 Demons sign scholarships; brings grand total to 17

One signing day wasn’t enough, so Warner Robins had two.

The first came back on Feb. 6 – National Signing Day across the nation. At that time 10 Demons signed (see a review of the full list below). Monday, seven more did likewise.

“This was a special year obviously for a lot of reasons,” said Head Coach Mike Chastain – one of those being the team’s Region 1-AAAAA championship and another being the runner-up for all of the Class at state. “(But) I don’t know if in Warner Robins history if they ever sent … 17 guys on to play college ball, and to me that’s huge.”

Those signing Monday were Burnette, a running back. He was also named to the All-Region 1-AAAAAA Second team and signed with Georgia Prep Sports Academy out of Decatur. Jerquan Parrish, a lineback who was named to the First team, also signed with the Lions, who were the East Atlantic Conference champion in 2016.

Offensive and defensive lineman Sam Bish on the other hand, signed with the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy out of Nassau County, New York. Bish was also a First team honoree.

Jarius Evans is also headed north, but in his case, with a small western spin to it. He, a defensive back, is going to Iowa Wesleyan University.

Ditto for Dalton Hedden, who inked his Letter of Intent with Highland Community College in Kansas. Hedden is a tight end and defensive lineman, who was also named to the All-Region First team.

Two that will be staying a bit closer to home are Coby Reed and Eric Williams. Reed, a tight end and linebacker, signed with Mercer – Chastain said he only played seven games for them, but even in those made his mark. Williams, a defensive lineman, signed with Fort Valley State University.

As far as those 10 that signed previously, Christian Armstrong signed with FSU. Dillon Braunstein signed with Fort Valley State, Julius Cobbs, West Georgia, Jam’l Dillard, Lenoir Rhyne, Chris Georgia, Murray State, C.J. Harris, Auburn, Bobby Kelly, GMC, Eli Mashburn, Fort Valley, JaBari Miller, Middle Georgia and Jaeven West, West Georgia.
